Einstein's special relativity tells us that a object's energy increases without bound as its velocity approaches the speed of light (assuming the object has mass). So in order to accelerate an object to the speed of light, we would have to give it an infinite amount of energy, which is obviously impossible. Ricky Escobar · 4 years, 2 months ago

I think the light never reach the speed of light.

And then, only one way to reach the speed of light. We must have all energy in universe and use it in just a smallest unit of time. All energy in universe mean that actually all energy, including our body that has chemical energy. Then I think only at the first smallest unit of time on Big Bang explosion event, the speed of light occured.

If we have another universe, we will be so easy to reach speed of light because we can combine the energy from that universe. But still in dream, not yet found in reality.

Only my thinking without any theory those made by physician and/or mathematician. So, maybe there are some mistakes.
